Marvel is taking full advantage by pushing as much merchandise for the wildly popular “Guardians of the Galaxy”. The James Gunn directed movie is one of Marvel’s most successful movies in history, boasting with a record selling sound track. By August 2014, “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1” had reached the top of the Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album in history consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. By September it was the second best-selling soundtrack album in the US (after Frozen) with 426,000 copies sold to date.
Some geeks may have taken advantage of the opportunity to own an exclusive copy of the soundtrack on vinyl which was released on September 16, and now we can own it on cassette tape as well from of November 17. The limited edition cassette tape release will be exclusive to retailers associated with Record Store Day, and is the first cassette release by Disney Music Group since 2003. Obviously we can own a copy on CD, but what the fun in that? The songs can be heard throughout the movie, featuring smash hits from Blue Swede, David Bowie, The Jackson 5, The Runaways, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell to name a few.
Btw……where will I find a ghetto jukebox to play the damn tape?
